Non-Designated Heritage Assets in Tewkesbury
We have been approached by Nana Pierre, Heritage Engagement Officer, Tewkesbury Borough Council to help her draw up a list of Non-Designated Heritage Assets.
Non-designated heritage assets are locally-identified ‘buildings, monuments, sites, places, areas or landscapes identified by plan-making bodies as having a degree of heritage significance meriting consideration in planning decisions, but which do not meet the criteria for designated heritage assets’ (PPG). It is important to note that some non-designated heritage assets are equivalent to designated heritage assets in terms of significance.
They do not have the status of listed buildings but might contribute to planning debate about a possible development. There might be some such asset you feel ought to be added to the list Nana is constructing. For example: Mythe Tunnel and Remnants of the 1864 Railway Station are not included.
You can see A: here the list of listed buildings in our town compiled by Historic England and Tewkesbury Town Council to check if the asset which interests you has already been ‘listed’.
If you wish to submit an asset via THS then please check the B: Published Criteria
And if you think you can make the case, you have to C: Fulfil the Criteria which is quite demanding of your time and knowledge.
If you wish to go ahead, please submit a draft of your proposal [C] to firstname.lastname@example.org us to consider.
